Faryal says she did not have any major negative experiences in making of her challenging and radical film on the contemporary issue, because she chose to frame the issues differently.  She has graduated from the London College of Communication with a degree in filmmaking and worked as an assistant director on a number of independent films. She wants to show her film in Asian countries like Pakistan and India.
